Terrible experience dealing with the crooks at the front desk. They told us one price, and charged another, all extremely shady. I would Never stay here again. The disputes over the bills ruined our holiday.

If you think of Mexico with a Spanish influence, the smell of exotic flowers, and architecture that puts you into a dream, you're home. The photos displayed are completely accurate and the gardens are so beautiful. This Inn is over 100 years old and between the gardens, the chapel, the Inn, the fountains, art, and the pool, it is divine....

Lush courtyard with a pool and flowers that attract birds, very helpful staff, and walking distance to all of the restaurants, galleries, and shops you need. We stayed in the annex across the street and it felt private and secluded. Rooms were comfortable. Great for a night or 2 in San Jose del Cabo before catching a flight home.

My wife and I stayed at El Encanto Inn for two weeks in late January- early February 2017. The whole place is very charming, as advertised. Our room was a Pool Suite on the main floor of the main building. It was very convenient to the pool and the garden, and everything worked out very well. The Inn is well...

We recently stayed at El Encanto Suites for 3 nights. The exterior outdoor area was well appointed around the pool with lovely surrounding gardens, and comfortable pool chairs (towels available on request). However, the pool water was very cold and over the 3 days we were there I was the only one to venture in for a quick swim. The...

Stayed here on a girls trip in two rooms with our dogs. Excellent location but the "dog-friendly" area rooms are a block away from the main hotel. Rooms are basic but didn't spend much time in the room. The main hotel area by the pool and restaurants look very nice. Recommend for an economical yet nice hotel in a wonderful...

After a minorly troublesome booking process on the website, a startling credit card rejection (due to hotel input error according to the card company) one week out from our travel dates, and a no show car service at the airport (also booked on/via hotel website), we arrived at the hotel property and it was lovely and the staff were wonderful-especially...

We had contacted the hotel 4 times about setting up a shuttle for us from the airport and had given our details multiple times. We could not get them to confirm and needless to say no shuttle. So, do not count on using them for that. The pool suites were lovely and it's a charming hotel. Very relaxing and cute...

This is a small charming hotel with a local feel and character within easy walking to all the local restaurants, shops and Town Square. It has a small quiet courtyard and pool (not heated!) which is fine and I am sure warm and refreshing in the non-winter months. There is no restaurant at the hotel, but so many inexpensive and...

We had reservations at El Encanto Inn for 5 days in January, and stayed in one of the king rooms by the pool. We loved our visit! Hotel is in a great location and it is easy to walk to the many restaurants in the area. As soon as we entered the room we felt relaxed. The rooms are furnished...
